Changing attitudes about schizophrenia. (1/50)

Research on the effectiveness of short-term education programs in changing societal attitudes about mental illness has been mixed. Education efforts seem to be mediated by characteristics of the program participants. This study determines whether the effects of a specially prepared, semester-long course on severe mental illness are mediated by pre-education knowledge about and contact with severe mental illness. Eighty-three participants who were enrolled in either a course on severe mental illness or general psychology completed the Opinions about Mental Illness Questionnaire before beginning the course and at completion. Research participants also completed a pre-and posttest of knowledge about mental illness and a pretest on their contact with people who have severe mental illness. The education program had positive effects on some attitudes about mental illness. Interestingly, the effects of education group interacted with pre-education knowledge and contact and varied depending on attitude. Participants with more pre-education knowledge and contact were less likely to endorse benevolence attitudes after completing the education program. Participants with more intimate contact showed less improvement in attitudes about social restrictiveness. Implications of these augmentation and ceiling effects are discussed.  (+info)

Autonomy, liberalism and advance care planning. (2/50)

The justification for advance directives is grounded in the notion that they extend patient autonomy into future states of incompetency through patient participation in decision making about end-of-life care. Four objections challenge the necessity and sufficiency of individual autonomy, perceived to be a defining feature of liberal philosophical theory, as a basis of advance care planning. These objections are that the liberal concept of autonomy (i) implies a misconception of the individual self, (ii) entails the denial of values of social justice, (iii) does not account for justifiable acts of paternalism, and (iv) does not account for the importance of personal relationships in the advance care planning process. The last objection is especially pertinent in light of recent empirical research highlighting the importance of personal relationships in advance care planning. This article examines these four objections to autonomy, and the liberal theoretical framework with which it is associated, in order to re-evaluate the philosophical basis of advance care planning. We argue that liberal autonomy (i) is not a misconceived concept as critics assume, (ii) does not entail the denial of values of social justice, (iii) can account for justifiable acts of paternalism, though it (iv) is not the best account of the value of personal relationships that arise in advance care planning. In conclusion, we suggest that liberalism is a necessary component of a theoretical framework for advance care planning but that it needs to be supplemented with theories that focus explicitly on the significance of personal relationships.  (+info)

Pregnancy, autonomy and paternalism. (3/50)

Modern medicine is increasingly aware of the significance of patient autonomy in making treatment choices. This would seem to be particularly important where the therapy requested was "voluntary" as in fertility treatment or cosmetic surgery. However, the Hippocratic doctrine "Primum non nocere", seems especially relevant where the treatment sought may have a low chance of a successful outcome or even be life-threatening. Mrs A's case demonstrates the difficulty faced by the physician who wants to maximise her patient's autonomy, but "Above all, do no harm".  (+info)

At the coalface, but on the receiving end. (4/50)

In dealing with patients the doctor is very often paternalistic. No more so than when the patient is unable to help him--or herself. Modern technology allows people to be kept alive in "intensive care" where they often become an "object" at the centre of proceedings. Fortunately for them, most patients who survive intensive care cannot remember the experience though this does not mean that they were not suffering at the time. There is a strong case for explaining things as much as possible and for making practical procedures as tolerable as possible. The relatives and families of the seriously ill often have great difficulty in understanding what is happening to their loved ones and, in these situations, suffer a great deal of stress and foreboding regarding the ultimate outcome of their illness. The stress on the staff who may become "attached" to their patients often shows through as an indifferent attitude. Peter remembers three out of fourteen days in intensive care and Jane, his wife, remembers the whole experience. Here we tell our stories in the hope that they may help our medical and nursing colleagues to manage better the patients under their care in this situation.  (+info)

People and work: some contemporary issues. (5/50)

In advanced industrial societies social, economic, and technological changes are accompanied by changing values and attitudes to work, symptomatic of what some see as the transition to a post-industrial era. As a result existing job definitions and traditional forms of organization are being challenged and attempts made to restructure work so that it becomes meaningful and rewarding in the fullest sense, to the individual, to the enterprise, and to society. These range from programmes of job enlargement and job enrichment, within the framework of existing technologies, to experiments in the design of organizations as a whole in which fewer constraints are accepted as given. They entail and require a multidisciplinary approach as well as awareness of and commitment to the underlying values. The possibilities and benefits of restructuring work in these various ways have been demonstrated sufficiently to encourage interest at governmental level as well as by employers and trade unions. There are, however, no simple prescriptions or principles of universal application. Knowledge is still tentative and partial but there is consensus that the search for new ways of dealing with the organization of work and the allocation of resources is of fundamental importance.  (+info)

Prejudice, social distance, and familiarity with mental illness. (6/50)

In this study, the paths between two prejudicial attitudes (authoritarianism and benevolence) and a proxy measure of behavioral discrimination (social distance) were examined in a sample drawn from the general public. Moreover, the effects of two person variables (familiarity with mental illness and ethnicity) on prejudice were examined in the path analysis. One hundred fifty-one research participants completed measures of prejudice toward, social distance from, and familiarity with mental illness. Goodness-of-fit indexes from path analyses supported our hypotheses. Social distance is influenced by both kinds of prejudice: authoritarianism (the belief that persons with mental illness cannot care for themselves, so a paternalistic health system must do so) and benevolence (the belief that persons with mental illness are innocent and childlike). These forms of prejudice, in turn, are influenced by the believers' familiarity with mental illness and their ethnicity. We also discuss how these findings might contribute to a fuller understanding of mental illness stigma.  (+info)

Doctors' authoritarianism in end-of-life treatment decisions. A comparison between Russia, Sweden and Germany. (7/50)

OBJECTIVES: The study was performed in order to investigate how end-of-life decisions are influenced by cultural and sociopolitical circumstances and to explore the compliance of doctors with patient wishes. PARTICIPANTS AND MEASUREMENT: Five hundred and thirty-five physicians were surveyed in Sweden (Umea), Germany (Rostock and Neubrandenburg), and in Russia (Arkhangelsk) by a questionnaire. The participants were recruited according to availability and are not representative. The questionnaire is based on the one developed by Molloy and co-workers in Canada which contains three case vignettes about an 82-year-old Alzheimer patient with an acute life-threatening condition; the questionnaire includes different levels of information about his treatment wishes. We have added various questions about attitudes determining doctors' decision making process (legal and ethical concerns, patient's and family wishes, hospital costs, patient's age and level of dementia and physician's religion). RESULTS: Swedish physicians chose fewer life-prolonging interventions as compared with the Russian and the German doctors. Swedish physicians would perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the event of a cardiac arrest less frequently, followed by the German doctors. More than half the Russian physicians decided to perform CPR irrespective of the available information about the patient's wishes. Level of dementia emerged as the most powerful determining attitude-variable for the decision making in all three countries. CONCLUSIONS: The lack of compliance with patient wishes among a substantial number of doctors points to the necessity of emphasising ethical aspects both in medical education and clinical practice. The inconsistency in the treatment decisions of doctors from different countries calls for social consensus in this matter.  (+info)

Of doctor-patient sex and assisted suicide. (8/50)

The ethical chapter of the Israel Medical Association has recently issued guidelines with regard to sexual relationships between doctors and patients or past patients. This paper juxtaposes the paternalistic and severe attitude to doctor-patient sex with the relaxation and individualization of decisions regarding doctors' involvement in assisted suicide, passive and active euthanasia. The discussion bears on our concepts of palliative care and our expectations from it.  (+info)

Turkeys most violent riots in decades may have been started by the destruction of a small Istanbul park, but they have exploded in a show of defiance at what many see as the creeping authoritarianism of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.. In power for more than a decade, Erdogans Islamist-rooted AK Party has increased its share of the vote in each of the past three elections, ushered in unprecedented political stability and overseen some of the fastest economic growth in Europe.. Now in his last term as prime minister, Erdogan is trying to leave his stamp on Turkey by recasting foreign policy, overhauling the constitution and even transforming the ancient Istanbul skyline.. But some, including former supporters, accuse him of growing increasingly authoritarian, muzzling the media, tightening his AK partys grip on state institutions and putting religion at the centre of politics in violation of Turkeys secular constitution.. "If it were up to the prime minister, I would be wearing a head scarf," ...
The ongoing take over of Crimea by Russia, and its intense political campaigning to annul the results of the Kiev revolution, took most observers of international politics by surprise. Normally, one has not been considering Russia as a serious contender of the United States for hegemony, as a country with serious economic or military resources, or even as a country with a particularly serious ideology. American and European political science has for decades been busy with "transitions to democracy" and the evaluation of their relative successes (even though there is a recent shift toward the study of authoritarianism), and in International Relations, China seemed to be the only possible opponent to U.S. unilateral hegemony. European Studies examines the various neighborhood policies of the European Union, measuring their relative success in "democratization." The U.S. and European leaders therefore reacted to the events in Russia and Ukraine with surprise: John Kerry spoke of Russias ...

The reaction to Westpac handing over Nicky Hagers data to police is still playing out. Rob Hosking observes a creeping authoritarianism from the current government.
Their uniting feature, however, is that both groups, however much state intervention they seem to desire, want to achieve their authoritarian impulse via social dominance. They want to change the culture so that that which they deem unthinkable is what everyone deems unthinkable, and thats an authoritarian impulse. They want call-outs. They want social shaming, sometimes on grand scales. They want serious real-world consequences, like no-platforming, blacklisting, firings, individual marginalization (to be distinguished from the marginalization of ideas), and perhaps even vigilante retributions (which may not actually include physical violence) in response to perceived deviations, often vastly in excess of any reasonable definition of "justice." They want punishment, and they want to make examples of offenders. Thats an authoritarian impulse. Whether the state acts upon it or not, the mob, or as they would have it, the prevailing culture, can act just as (or more) effectively and with equal ...
The Authoritarian Personality_ involved a series of studies sponsored by the American Jewish Committee which were supposed to define a certain personality type which would be easily taken up with antidemocratic propaganda, in light of the tragedy and disaster that was the Third Reich. Scales were developed to assess Antisemitism, Political-Economic Conservativism (which amounted to support for laissez-faire capitalism), and Authoritarianism (the F (for Fascist) scale). Both the Antisemitism scale and the Political-Economic Conservativism scale involved predictable statements in which the subjects had to state their level of agreement with in order to achieve a score. The F scale, involved a series of statements which were designed to measure conventionalism, authoritarian submission, authoritarian aggression, anti-intraception (i.e. Opposition to the subjective, the imaginative, and the tender-minded.), superstition and stereotypy, power and toughness, destructiveness and cynicism, ...
At a CNN-hosted town hall debate, Donald Trump said that the US governments core focus should be on security (times three!), health care, and education. In spite of this vague, rambling answer, and much other blathering in support of big government, the real estate mogul has a large, intense following, which includes people on the right, the left, and even some paleoconservatives and libertarians.. In some ways, its understandable: if the normal process of politics revolts you in any way, the dream of anti-candidate Trump is sweet. The approval rating for the presidency in general is around 30 percent, according to Gallup. For Congress, its a stingy eight percent. People - or at least the people Gallup calls - do not seem terribly impressed by their elected officials.. Nor should they be.

For some of us, this was an expected result given the fact that illiberal democracies have become more the norm than the exception in many countries with different cultures and religions. Erdoğans authoritarianism is not a new type of political Islam and but old school nationalism combined with illiberal democracy, just like Putin in Russia and Modi in India. Erdoğans authoritarianism has nothing to do with Islam but uses religion supported by the ideology of Turkish nationalism. The main obstacles blocking Turkeys democratic path are set up by the founding paranoia of the state about its enemies outside and its distrust of ethnic minorities inside. This nationalist tradition has been ruling the country, both in the name of conservatism and religion. In practice, Erdoğan has been in power for the last 14 years and mastered the paranoia of inside and outside enemies by using nationalist and anti-western discourses. The referendum was about confidence in Erdoğan. One of the crucial ...

You seemed to have been trying to tie authoritarianism to the Republicans exclusively rather than accurately portraying both parties as mostly authoritarian. EXC was just pointing out an example of Obamas authoritarian streak. Obama also has been delcaring that Republicans should stop their talking and get in line with him. Obamas rhetoric and some of his actions seem authoritarian. One suspects that you label the Republicans as authoritarian yet not the Democrats or Obama as a way to slur them and ignore some of the Democrats problems.. Using your definition of conservative: you think Obama is conservative because of how much he fights for tradition? Are you sure about that? Obama is keeping the status quo on torture and gay rights. I could see how he leans socially conservative on those areas. But then I can think of other areas in which he leans liberal on social issues (ie. abortion, gun control and affirmative action) I can not see how Obama is in any way a conservative on economic ...

Abstract Abstract:. How do authoritarian leaders insulate their regimes from the contagion effects generated by cross-national waves of popular protest? This article compares the strategies of leaders in four authoritarian regimes-Azerbaijan, China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia-and their responses to the color revolutions and the Arab uprisings. This comparison reveals that these countries have developed an elaborate and similar toolkit to defend the authoritarian status quo and that vigilant autocrats take preemptive measures even when popular uprisings erupt in geographically distant regions or within very different political systems.. ...

From a strictly stylistic point view, Fosters anthropomorphic discourse concerning the principle of autonomy, to which most of the time he refers as a real being, is notable. However, problems arise as many times the reader might have the impression that far from being a mere literary device, this anthropomorphic way of writing seems manipulative, a problem which increases as soon as these formal questions are connected to issues concerning the books essence. It is not only that the authors discourse can be perceived as unidirectional, as he continuously presents autonomy as a being with authoritarianism, egocentric or dictatorship manners (autonomy is for example described as "ruthless," "fat and [*794] brutal in power"), while the other "contenders for a voice" are always described as humble, positive and just looking for their place without pretending to monopolize the bio-legal debate. The really problematic question is that the reader would probably expect much more evidence and ...
I fell in love with the idea immediately and have cherished and brooded over it ever since. That spontaneous response in me has something to do with my particular background, which is part of a larger pattern I see almost everywhere I turn in the Church and in society these days. So, at the risk of being too self-referential, let me explain a little.. The formation of my soul involved a large element of authoritarianism in various guises and modes. There was sternness and staunchness in my upbringing; many rules, demands and expectations, and too little in the way of affection, closeness, and encouragement. I grew up "good", morally and religiously, but shy and insecure, full of anxiety, self-doubt, and self-reproach.. The friendship of evangelicals in my adolescence-the consciously personal and affective character of their spirituality-and then later, the warmth and liveliness of the religious atmosphere of my alma mater, saved me. Most importantly, I learned, slowly and spastically, to ...

Fahrenheit 451" is perhaps his most successful book-length narrative. An indictment of authoritarianism, it portrays a book-burning America of the near future, its central character a so-called fireman, whose job is to light the bonfires. (The title refers to the temperature at which paper ignites.) Some critics compared it favorably to George Orwells "1984." François Truffaut adapted the book for a well-received movie in 1966 starring Oskar Werner and Julie Christie. As Mr. Bradburys reputation grew, he found new outlets for his talents. He wrote the screenplay for John Hustons 1956 film version of "Moby-Dick," scripts for the television series "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and collections of poetry and plays. ...
For a long while we have not had an exactly stated policy on building a public image. We have just been ourselves and done our jobs and hoped somebody would catch on. This is basically what protected us. And we should keep doing it.. But the time has come to also build a public image as an outflow publicity action.. The image is:. SCIENTOLOGISTS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CLEANING UP THE FIELD OF MENTAL HEALING AND EFFECTIVELY HANDLING MENTAL HEALTH ON THE PLANET.. Note that it is dual. We will handle the first part of it first, "cleaning up the field of mental healing." It is a dirty, inhuman, rotten field, full of graft, misappropriation, phony authoritarianism and betrayal. Because it is like this we get a backflash from it. We are the only ones in it who have clean hands and effective technology. So we have no choice but to NOISILY clean it up. That builds that much of the image. By uniting with other civic, humanitarian, and civil- and human-rights groups we can make an organized ...
Mr Cameron said, "let us be proud that this is a Christian country, where we stand for the freedom to practise your faith, and where we stand up for Christians and all those who are persecuted anywhere in our world".. He went on to visit a Sikh temple in Kent, to mark the Vaisakhi festival, and told people there: "Im proud to be the first prime minister to host a Vaisakhi reception at Number 10".. In January this year, the Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg said that free speech has to be for everyone if it is to mean anything, as he warned against "knee-jerk authoritarianism" in the wake of the terrorist attacks in France. ...
When a public body says it is to carry out a consultation exercise, what does that suggest to you? Naively, I once believed that it involved asking people what they thought about a particular policy, setting out all the facts in an objective fashion, and if those likely to be affected did not like what they saw to drop or modify the original plan. It turns out, however, to mean nothing of the sort.. Ask the people of Southampton and its environs in south-west Hampshire. They have just been the subject of a "consultation" on whether to add fluoride to their water supply. There were 10,000 responses, 78 per cent of which were opposed. The local health authority carried out a telephone poll, which also showed a majority against. But it is going ahead anyway. Not only is this an affront to any concept of local decision-making, it is a breathtaking piece of social authoritarianism. Whether or not fluoride helps reduce tooth decay is irrelevant. Medication should not be added to the water supply; and ...

And if you still think this is another manifestation of Chinas authoritarianism, just using safety as a pretext, you might like to bear in mind that the US authorities have required drone owners to register their machines for over a year. However, those regulations have just been struck down by a federal court in Washington, D.C., and its not clear what the FAA will now do. Perhaps more interesting than arguing about Chinas real motives here, is information in the South China Morning Post story about who is using this technology in China: ...
Young people in particular, says Giroux, no longer see much hope in such an unfair society with its ethos of greed. The mall and the prison he writes, have become the preeminent institutions for symbolizing what the future hold for them as they suffer the soft war of commodification or the hard war of hyper-punishment and possible incarceration. This marginalisation of youth can be seen in in any city and town in New Zealand. The belief in the common good with its shared social bonds, established after the Great Depression (in America by Roosevelts New Deal by the Welfare State established (and at the same time by the first Labour Government in New Zealand) have been replaced by rampant selfish individualism. In response, around the world, young people are taking things into their own hands (the 99%) demonstrating against this creeping authoritarianism - about the pernicious effect of corporate influence in all aspects of life.﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽﻽ ...
Republicans embrace presidential authoritarianism, continuing a foul bipartisan tradition of legislating immigration through the executive branch.
At issue, in Ellisons time and today, is the degree to which any individual voice is allowed to express himself. And Ellison rightly resented any force that would stifle this, whether it be the lingering dregs of Southern slavery telling the African-American how he must act or who he must be in telling his story as well as the myopic critics who would gainsay any voice by way of their boxlike assumptions about other Americans. One sees this unthinking lurch towards authoritarianism today with such white supremacists as Jonathan Franzen, Lionel Shriver, and the many Brooklyn novelists who, despite setting their works in gentrified neighborhoods still prominently populated by African-Americans, fail to include, much less humanize, black people who still live there. "White supremacist" may seem like a harshly provocative label for any bumbling white writer who lacks the democratic bonhomie to leave the house and talk with other people and consider that those who do not share his skin color may ...

This past June, Karen Hobert Flynn was appointed as the tenth president of Common Cause, the nonpartisan government accountability advocacy group founded in 1970. Hobert Flynn has been involved in Common Cause for more than 25 years and has delved into reform efforts in a number of areas ranging from political money and democracy to voting rights. She headed up the groups Connecticut office for more than a decade and helped implement one of the strongest state campaign-finance reform laws in the country. The American Prospect sat down with her to talk about her new role and her thoughts on the issues confronting our democracy today. This is an edited and condensed version of our conversation. Jennifer Baik: We are at a pivotal moment in our history where the United States could creep into authoritarianism, continue on our current trajectory, or move in a more progressive direction. How would you characterize the historical moment?. Karen Hobert Flynn: I have never seen-in the 30-plus years Ive ...
Journalism (real and fake) and the fate of democracy (its truths and post-truths) have suddenly become a hot topic around the world. A veritable political and media storm has social critics and pundits perplexed as to how to explain many of todays political events. The storm has spread out from the unexpected results of the American presidential elections along with the return of right-wing populism, and the subsequent series of attacks on Immigrants, DACA, LGBTI, and many other vulnerable communities. It comes with a return of ethnic nationalism and the Brexit referendum, a new Cold War, and the globally publicized impeachment ("constitutional coup") of the President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff. These examples are not simply a shift toward right-wing authoritarianism, bigger big business, militarization, or the scapegoating of minorities, but in many instances the fabulous denial of social facts journalists, politicians and social scientists are expected to trust in order to carry out their ...
Turkey has defeated a coup - and unleashed a violent mob. In standing up to their military the Turkish people have at last broken with the past and tamed the army - but at what price?. Exactly who orchestrated the coup remains unclear. And, as usual in Turkey, conspiracy theories abound. While the government points the finger at the Pennsylvania-based Islamic cleric Fetullah Gülen, whom Erdoğan accused of attempting to oust him with a corruption scandal in December 2013, others believe the president himself stage-managed it all to consolidate his power by quashing the military for good.. According to this theory, Erdoğan now has a cast-iron excuse for future authoritarianism, having established himself as the countrys undisputed guardian of popular rule - after all, the coup failed after his supporters responded to his call to take to the streets. I dont share this view. A better theory is that Friday was a last-ditch attempt by factions of the army desperate to remove Erdoğan before he ...

Events in Egypt - where so far things have not deteriorated to the levels of carnage now seen in Iraq or Syria - have not reached their conclusion, perhaps not even their mid-point. Islamic-style authoritarianism is the dominant characteristic of governance shared by both the military and the Muslim Brotherhood, theocrats and non-theocrats: one or the other must be dominant. They cannot share power. There will be no coalition government or government of national unity. One side or the other must come out on top after the bloodletting is done (which could be a long time indeed). Neither will there be anything approaching genuine liberal democratic civil society in Egypt for possibly an even longer time. The foundational building blocks of civil society-individual liberty, freedom of belief and speech, genuine universal equality before the law, citizens participation in their own governance that goes beyond a mere ballot box exercise-are simply not there and cannot develop there as long as so ...

It revealed his clingy reverence for, and allegiance to, the gurus of population control authoritarianism. Hes just gotten smarter about cloaking it behind global warming hysteria. In 2007, he addressed the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference. Holdren served as AAAS president; the organization posted his full slide presentation on its website.. In the opening slide, Holdren admitted that his "preoccupation" with apocalyptic matters such as "the rates at which people breed" was a lifelong obsession spurred by Harrison Browns work. Holdren heaped praise on Browns half-century-old book, "The Challenge of Mans Future," and then proceeded to paint ...

I gather Goldberg says a bit nastily that FDR developed so many fascist trappings, it is hard to tell whether fascism is more characteristic of the left or the right. I guess before World War II it would have been legitimate to say fascism, defined as populism plus authoritarianism, was somewhat more likely to arise on the left than the right. Although there were bright people on the right--moreso than after World War II--the left often seemed to be where the action was. Post-War, however, there seems to be little excuse for pretending the confusion continued. Fascism is to the right as communism is to the left. Both extremes are likely to commit violence, create new elites, and oppress the common people while claiming to liberate them; but fascists are far more likely to work with the old, right-wing elites: property owners, church, military. Communism, in its crazy war on its own people for not being socialist enough, is pretty well forced to keep making a clean sweep of the old elites. ...

Margaret, #85, your insight on authoritarianism reminded me of the time I was out sailing on Seattles Lake Union, and we happened upon a catamaran that had two masts side-by-side, instead of fore-and-aft like most mono-hull boats with more than one mast. The skipper of the boat I was assisting on hollered over to the other boat, "Hey, which one is the foremast?" He thought it was hilarious, but I, in my morbid obsessive way, wondered why the fuck he would even do that-obviously the other boat was different, and worked different, and its skipper was managing fine with two equal masts.. So now I am recalling all the times I was the one in/on the unusual vehicle-tandem bike, recumbent bike, unicycle, three-wheeled car, three-wheeled truck, front-wheel-drive motorcycle (its been a long, strange trip)-and how many people seem confused by something different, even angered, and how they feel free to comment and ridicule. (Ive had ideas of mine slagged by complete strangers, and I was sore tempted to ...

Narrative: The first concept i want to discuss about Authoritarians is what I call "Narrative". Contrary to the common view that Authoritarians live by the dictates of some unseen and vengeful God, they actually base their decisions/live their lives based upon a narrative of which a vengeful petty God is always a feature. Whether it be a Fundamentalist Zealot or an Objectivist ****, Authoritarians always have a narrative that determines everything they say, think, or do. Narrative is the true God of the Authoritarian, which is why what God actually says or does has very little practical worth. What Authoritarians care about is what God (Or for Objectivists the Free Market) should be doing according to the narrative. No matter what is actually happening, they will believe and behave as if the narrative is playing out exactly as they expected it too. Regardless of actual real world circumstances, outcomes, situations, or influences, Authoritarians always prize the narrative above all else ...
At mid-evening, on Saturday, March 17, upon the six-month anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, the NYPD - because the department suffered no ill consequences from their search and destroy mission launched, in the late fall of 2011, to scour Liberty Square of liberty - initiated another brutal operation to expel OWS activists from the premises, and to discourage, in general, those who might venture attempts to exercise their right to free assembly and free expression across the whole of the city of New York as winter proceeds into spring.. In a police state, unjust actions by authoritarian bullies, operating at the behest of privileged bullies in power, act by caprice and will escalate their level of brutality by the degree that the public at large reacts with support and indifference to the states assaults on civil liberties and common decency.. Bear in mind, police agencies, devoid of oversight, comprise a legal form of gang activity; therefore, when one is ...

1. The Connecticut Yankees Strategy for Liberty New ideas usually originate with tiny minorities. If they are scientific ideas, one need merely spread them to other scientific specialists. But if they are ideas about the good society, spreading them to experts is not enough; to implement them, one must somehow spread them far and wide, often to people with little interest in questions of political philosophy. Authoritarian thinkers have a standard solution to this problem: indoctrination coupled with repression. If most people arent interested, the state must terrorize the interest into them. In contrast, the classical liberal tradition has no easy answer to the question of how to spread its point of view in the face of apathy. The authoritarian solution is an excluded option almost by definition. Still, frustration sometimes leads classical liberal thinkers to seriously consider a watered- down version of the authoritarian route. Is it possible to strip the top-down strategy of its brutality, ...
We describe a novel negative association between mothers supportive and guiding behaviour and the AVPR1A RS3 target allele, independent of the childs sex and RS3 genotype. The allele previously associated with autism [10], higher marital problems [12], lower generosity [11] and higher amygdala activation in an emotional face-matching task [13] is shown here to be related to lower levels of maternal structuring and supportive behaviour.. Baumrinds three widely used parenting style characterizations (permissive, authoritative and authoritarian) [20] are combinations of different degrees of warmth and control, the two main dimensions of parenting that were examined in this study. Authoritative parenting, a balanced combination of warmth and control, is considered to be the most adequate in Western societies, as it is associated with childrens self-reliance, self-control and contentment [20]. The RS3 target allele was found here to be associated with focused support but not with warmth or ...

Healthy dietary intake is important for the maintenance of general health and wellness, the prevention of chronic illness, the optimization of life expectancy, and the clinical management of virtually all disease states. Dietary myths (i.e., concepts about nutrition that are poorly supported or contradicted by scientific evidence) may stand in the way of healthy dietary intake. Dietary myths exist about micronutrients, macronutrients, non-nutrients, and food energy. Representative myths of each type include that patients need to focus on consuming enough calcium to ensure bone health, dietary fat leads to obesity and is detrimental to vascular health, all fiber (whether naturally occurring or artificially added) is beneficial, and food calories translate to pounds of body weight through a linear relationship and simple arithmetic ...
Neelams USP was cuteness. She was always seen in a pony-tail, wearing dungarees and t-shirt in college scenes or salwar-kameezes in family scenes. She was usually the daughter (Tanuja in Love 86) or sister (Amitabh in Agneepath) of an authoritarian figure. Her boyfriend was usually a tapori kind and her primary duty would be to playfully frown and pout at his antics. She has popped it a couple of times for the authoritarian figures to avenge her death (Indrajeet). In multi-starrers, she was the perfect foil to Kimi Katkar-style boisterous exposure and was the docile heroine. Though - for the life of me - I cannot recall any films of them together ...

Since the landmark victory of Tsai Ing-wen from Taiwans pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the 2016 presidential elections, mainland China has intensified the islands international isolation and intimidation through political pressure, economic coercion and military drills. In a January 2019 speech commemorating the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Message to Compatriots in Taiwan, Chinas President, Xi Jinping, alluded to the inevitability of unification based on a one country, two systems formula, which is widely rejected in Taiwan. Taiwans successful transition from an authoritarian anti-communist bulwark led by the Nationalist Party or Kuomintang (KMT), to a liberal multi-party democracy that embraces individual political freedoms, the rule of law and universal human rights, is a challenge for the authoritarian one-party system of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), as it belies mainland Chinas rhetoric that a liberal multi-party democracy is unsuitable for Chinese people.

Many, many years ago, (after graduating from UK with a masters degree in reproductive physiology) I got a job teaching elementary school. Why? I have no idea...I was probably the least qualified person there is, and I had ZERO classroom management skills because I am most definitely NOT the super authoritarian type. And, thats okay with your own kids, but definitely very bad when trying to manage a classroom. My kids are the ones walking down the street in princess dresses barefoot because they prefer to be discalced (my husband is probably swooning right now, because I used the word discalced in a sentence). They have REALLY tough feet. Dont worry, we do have some ...
and did you know that behind every finance company in the whole world there lies a conspiracy. Yea, a conspiracy it be. A conspiracy to bring down New Zealand to the lowness even lower than what it is. Millions of people are involved in this terrible plot to get stuck in and stick it to the Kiwis. Some of the people have Jewish surnames. Bet you didnt know about the Islamic Jews. Yes well, no one else did either cause it is super secret. They even have Islamic Catholics in there with Persian names and seven wives of mixed heritage. None of them are from New Zealand but. They are part of the skull and bones secret society. Some of them know the Bush family and some of them are in with the North Koreans. Some of them have WMDs and are responsible for the destruction of the mortgage market in the USA. They are the ones who put the crocodiles in your swimmming pool at night (if you live in Florida- yes they are there too- they are all over). They are going to take away everything in little boxes. ...

That is, of course, what happened with my mom. The only reason she experienced awful muscle and joint pains while on statins is that she believed they might cause muscle and joint pains. Granted, she didnt believe statins could cause muscle and joint pains until she complained to me about the pains and I asked if she was on statins. But thats the power of cult-like thinking: it can go backwards in time and cause a nocebo effect.. Anyway, now that the cats out of the bag, I may as well tell you about the cult. To make the confession more convincing, I clipped some "signs and practices of cults" from the internet as headings.. Authoritarian leadership. Cult members are expected to completely submit to a leader who is seen as a prophet, apostle, or special individual with unusual connections to God.. Our authoritarian leader is, of course, Dr. Uffe Ranvskov. All of us who joined the cult have a 10-foot-tall picture of him somewhere in our houses or apartments. Were required to bow to the ...
I admit I dont know a bunch about Ted Cruz, but if he has aspirations to make our country a Theocracy then he is an Authoritarian that we cant afford. I dont want any Authoritarians in charge of this country from either side of the aisle. I am not sure who is the least dangerous of all the candidates because all of them seem to want to change things that will affect me and my family and I suppose I want the candidate that will affect me the least ...
At the market in Sidi Bouzid you would see the vegetable cart behind which Mohamed Bouazizi was standing before he set himself on fire, fanning the flames of the revolutions of the "Arab Spring", and you would see a Bouazizi look-alike standing there looking every bit as ragged as the original. In the suburbs of Cairo and Suez you would stumble around amongst the corrugated-metal sheds in the slums of El Arbaeen, where the first people lost their lives as victims of the Egyptian revolution. You would find there the same destitute families, the same miserable faces that sparked the fire of revolution; their poverty and fears have only grown worse now that the streets are no longer safe due to roaming crowds of rowdies and rising crime - as if nothing had ever changed.. Venturing into the "centre" of Tunis or Cairo on the other hand, you would encounter faces, persons and anodyne structures that hid themselves away during the course of the revolution and only dared surface again after the head of ...
The actions of George Soros can, IMHO, be traced back through a work by Popper about Hagel. It helps to illustrate why Marxism is the way it is, why it has been connected at the hip with Authoritarian ideation from the start (as Hagel was an Authoritarian Apologist in some ways) and how all this…

Another stream of my work concerns the right to parent. This is intriguing: the most plausible understanding of parental authority is fiduciary - exercised for the sake of the childs interest. And yet, we allow adults to take charge of the lives of children merely because they could procreate them and in the privacy of familial spaces, mostly unregulated. For a while, I was convinced by theories that ground the right to parent by appeal to both the childs interest in having parents and the adults interest in rearing. I noticed these accounts failed to explain why adults have the right to parent particular children and tried to fill this gap: We come into the world through the bodies of other human beings, a.k.a. mothers, with whom we are, at birth, already in an intimate albeit unusual sort of relationship. If breaking such relationships would harm the newborn - as well as the gestational mother! - this is a good reason to give the right to rear particular children to particular adults (as ...
If your teenager shows signs of having an eating disorder, you may hope that, with the right mix of love, encouragement, and parental authority, he or she will just "snap out of it." If only it were that simple. To make matters worse, certain treatments assume youve somehow contributed to the problem and prohibit you from taking an active role. But as you watch your own teen struggle with a life-threatening illness, every fiber of your being tells you there must be some part you can play in restoring your childs health. In Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder, James Lock and Daniel Le Grange--two of the nations top experts on the treatment of eating disorders--present compelling evidence that your involvement as a parent is critical. In fact, it may be the key to conquering your childs illness. Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder provides the tools you need to build a united family front that attacks the illness to ensure that your child develops nourishing eating habits and ...
Controversy surrounding the decision to resuscitate at the limits or borderline of viability has been at the center of neonatal ethical debate for decades. This debate has led to numerous reports from individual institutions, councils, and advisory committees that all have remarkable consistency in the development of gestational age-based guidelines. This article reviews legal or regulatory concerns that may contradict ethical discussion and guidelines, discriminatory and scientific basis concerns with consensus guidelines, and personal controversy about how to determine best interest. Guidelines are a reasonable place to start in helping determine parental authority and autonomy. The article also addresses controversies raised in counseling and costs.
Home education is financed by the persons who exercise parental authority or who have legal or factual custody of the underage pupils. The person(s) responsible must submit a declaration of home education to the unit Supervision of Compulsory Education of the Agency for Educational Services. When you choose for home education, you are obliged to let you child participate in the exams organised by the Examination Board of the Flemish Community at certain points in time (see also 2.4. Organisation of private education). In case a child is not registered in time or does not succeed in the exams of the examination board after a maximum of two attempts (s)he must be enrolled in a recognised school. ...
Rudy has been unfairly slandered as being pro-abortion. That was always malicious nonsense. Giuliani is a social conservative along the lines of the Manhattan Institute, the think tank that originated many of his best ideas as mayor. He believes in families, parental authority, and the preciousness of life. His bottom line during the campaign was that he had in fact ended up reducing abortions in New York City. That is a darned good outcome in a city where the establishment is rigidly leftist. A strong anti-abortion amendment to the US Constitution is not going to pass, as a practical matter. And any moral legislation to abortion has to balance the delicate question of the mothers health against the life of the fetus. ...
Much damage arises from bad parenting techniques. These include acting too authoritarian, TV, acting like a helicopter dad or not being emotionally available.
I actually think all of medicine needs to be reworked. Something I was trying to say, and may not have got it out coherently at the panel discusson, is that having doctors in charge of medical care and responsible for the outcomes doesnt benefit anybody. If birthing women were in charge, in power, and responsible for decision making (not really so much the outcome, because there is so much that is up to chance), I think they would be more satisfied--AND doctors maybe could relax some. Because I think if we stopped this patriarchal, authoritarian way of practicing medicine there would be far fewer lawsuits. If every woman got actual informed consent AND had the opportunity to make her own decisions and then got supportive care when they needed/wanted it, they would be far less likely to sue. (I just went through a long involved discussion with a new client about VBAC and feel I gave her a good understanding of the risks either way, but she is really stuck in that no one in driving distance who ...
Our early election-monitoring work was in countries in transition from authoritarian to civilian governments. Now requests come to us from countries with long experience in democratic elections, but where growing distrust between governments and opposition or control of election authorities by one or two parties erodes confidence in the electoral processes. We are therefore asked to monitor and mediate these elections to ensure that the election campaigns are fair, the count honest, and the results accepted. We also work with countries on second-generation democracy programs such as access to information and party and campaign finance.. Has the gradual decline of the role of the military in Latin American politics changed the climate of the Carter Centers work there ...
Instructor: Paritosh Kumar Course Title: Exploring Development: The two Indias of the 21st Century. India entered the twenty-first century with profound changes in its economy, politics and society. An authoritarian right-wing formation of the Hindu nationalist party came to dominate Indias political scene, dumping secular principles for a threatening religious posturing. In the sphere of foreign policy, India discarded its strong Southern commitment to a non-aligned foreign policy. The most noteworthy development, however, was in the economic sphere where the country quickly went from being one of the most insulated economics to adopting a neo-liberal model of integration into the world capitalist system. While India has experienced spectacular growth recently, it has also led to staggering inequalities, resource extraction, regional imbalances, rise of religious fundamentalism and large scale dispossession and dislocation of rural populations.. Using India as a case study, this course offers ...
Not that most people actually care or are even positioned in any way to think for themselves anymore, but how can you expect people to "learn to live with wild animals" and other such nonsense when the messages being delivered by the indoctrinated authorities is all over the board?. Lets look at some of the messages being delivered to the public by the Press from members of the so-called expert and authoritarian crowd, including government agencies.. In an article by an "expert" on bears, the expert addresses the fact that recently a professional runner (whatever that is) in Maine was attacked and chased by two bears. He wields the theory that the reason the bear chased the runner was for the same reason a dog chases a car…unknown. The runner decided, because he was a runner, I suppose, to attempt to outrun the bear. He did and ran into a building and hid behind a screen door. The expert says of this event: "Clearly if the bears wanted to get to him and all they had to do was lean into this ...
Among Republicans, the moral foundations significantly predicted vote choice for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Rand Paul, but not for Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, or Chris Christie.. We find the Authority/Loyalty/Sanctity foundation is significantly predictive of voting for Donald Trump, but none of the other GOP candidates. The Care foundation significantly predicts voting against Trump. This pattern is consistent with claims that Trump attracts authoritarians. Proportionality significantly predicts support for Cruz and Rubio even when controlling for ideology and demographics. These candidates draw the fiscal conservatives who want society to reward people according to what they have earned, not according to their needs. However, in contrast to Cruz and Rubio, Proportionality predicts voting against Jeb Bush. Instead Bush attracts Republicans who are less focused on enforcing proportional fairness in society. High ratings on the Liberty foundation ...
China has never been a good place for investigative reporters to ply their trade. Those who report on government corruption, police brutality and environmental degradation face intimidation, violence and jail. This repressive environment is well documented and the lack of press freedom is an established fact. However, foreign media have been largely shielded from such behavior, although the authorities still do everything they can to limit their access to information. No longer. The dragon bared its teeth recently when a number of foreign reporters, including a Bloomberg journalist, were roughed up when trying to cover a possible protest against authoritarian government rule.
The World Values Surveys and European Values Surveys series was designed to enable a crossnational, crosscultural comparison of values and norms on a wide variety of topics and to monitor changes in values and attitudes across the globe. This data collection contains the survey data from the four waves of the World Values Surveys and European Values Surveys, carried out in 1981-1984, 1990-1993, 1995-1997, and 1999-2004. These survey responses have now been integrated into one dataset, to facilitate time series analysis. The surveys provide data from representative national samples of the publics of approximately 81 societies (covering 60 countries) that contain 85 percent of the worlds population and cover a full range of variation, from societies with per capita incomes below 300 dollars per year, to societies with per capita incomes of more than 35,000 dollars per year, from long-established democracies to authoritarian states, and from societies with market economies to societies that are in ...

Oh, mama. Im so sorry to hear that youve experienced the shaming and bigotry that is still just far too common. Im even sorrier to hear that it sounds like youre having a problem with the littles school. That is probably the most difficult for me. For the most part, I can handle people judging me silently because, lets be honest -- they only have as much of an impact as we allow them to have. When its someone who plays a role in our lives that is in some way authoritarian or otherwise intrinsically linked directly to our *family*, its 10 times more stressful and hurtful. Especially when it concerns a little, and being told in one way or another that even though this person dont know you, they truly *must* know that youre a bad person because you have this label. Nothing is free of sanctimony these days, and it seems especially so with the Mean Girls/Good Old Boy clubs that schools have turned into /in regards to the adults/! If youre not one of the clique, then youre just not worthy ...

That is a traditional juxtaposition of Nationalism with religious extremism against clerical extremism looking to end Nations by bringing all Nations into Islamic control. From this the IRGC is utilizing its authoritarian power to enhance its prospects by slowly fomenting unrest via rhetoric and coercion. While still cracking down on outright rebellion, the move is to cleave the people of Iran from formless, Stateless Islamic Empire to that of Islamic Fascism with a harsh military element and expansionism of the State. Mr. Devenny also puts forward that not only are the means of power coming to the hands of the IRGC, but that the IRGC members are better educated than the mullahs and have a better grasp of how to utilize the power of the Nation State to extremist ends. Here the age-cohort of the original clerics is a strike against them as they have no ready successors to their power. And the Nationalist version of Islamic Fascism being put forward by the IRGC is far more destructive than the ...
Theres an awful lot of presumption in that statement. I would not call my doctors authoritarian by any means, nor have I felt pressured. Ive found them to be conscientious in informing me of the risks as they understand them, but Ive also found them willing to follow my cues, and to put off making any recommendations until the last minute. (After all, even if we do schedule a C-section, Tuesdays doctor told me cheerfully, your body might well have other ideas before youve even packed a bag. Could be. We all know my bodys just brimming with good ideas.). As to the charge that they are practicing cover-your-ass medicine, I dont know that I agree. There is perhaps the smallest kernel of truth in the charge, because what doctor wants to expose a patient to additional risk, whether the reason be ethical or financial? But my stronger conviction is that theyre practicing cover-Julies-and-her-babys-respective-asses medicine. Ive said several times that Im not all that picky about how the ...
413/542-8417. AMHERST, Mass.-Daniel L. Altschuler of New York City, a graduate of Amherst College in 2004, has been named a Rhodes Scholar. Altschuler is one of just 32 students nationally to receive the prestigious scholarships.. A political science, black studies and Spanish major at Amherst, Altschuler plans to study for a M.Phil. degree in development studies at Oxford University, and then hopes "to contribute meaningfully to development rooted in the experiences, voices and the visions of marginalized communities around the world," a goal he is already well on his way to accomplishing.. Since graduation, Altschuler has been working in Chile on a Watson Fellowship, compiling an oral history of the transition from authoritarian to democratic rule in urban shantytowns, rural towns and indigenous communities. He has also worked with housing organizations in South Africa, where he founded Asifunde Bantwana ("Lets Read, Children"), an after-school literacy program for children at the ...
Such as Voeglins life and work is also straightforward and touchy, his aim on Gnosticism as the starting point of these authoritarian tendencies holds within it a launch logical dump. Stable, admiration is due to the late Trainer Voeglin for wearing intensely to isolate and reveal the starting point of 20th century domination. From my middle knowledge, gleaned from a from way back, young adulthood, and prematurely greater part in the native soil of grandparents who lived overcome the Glum and WWII, as well as reading many books and articles on that time stage, I control found two works of especial outlook. Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault were pretty a bit high-class subtle in their unfriendliness of survey than their fresh, Dr. Voeglin, as well as maintaining an amazingly apolitical inspect. (Arendt was a German Jew, Foucault a gay French Communist at the time). For spanking reading, I aim Hannah Arendts "Origins of Cruelty" and Foucaults "Omnes et Singulatim." The latter work by Foucault ...
The Smiths had me under their control and completely indoctrinated into the Bahai Faith. I was their "spiritual son" and anything Mr. Smith said I took as truth. He began handing out "fezs", hats like the early Middle Eastern Baháis wore, to the younger male Baháis in the community. A symbol of his discipleship I suppose. This was alarming to the members of the National Spiritual Assembly who really took offense at this action, but did not confront Mr. Smith about it directly. I on the other hand and the other new young believers thought this was normal, wearing the fez, since none of the other older Baháis in the area said anything to him or us about it. At this time I was alienated from my family and former non-Bahai friends. Everything I did was Bahai, I felt I had all the answers and refused to listen to anyone else outside of the Bahai Faith. Mr. Smith began to get verbally abusive and authoritarian with me if I disagreed with him on any issue. He never struck me, but he did on ...
The religious-industrial-complex claiming to speak for any religion or sect is by its very nature dogmatic, authoritarian and narrow. Rigid codification of the activities of the Mind is a rather pointless exercise. That there might be some curriculum possibly of use to students is likely but just as in any "school" what really matters is how the student makes use of the matters that are taught. Memorization of texts and rituals (whether in madrassas or Soto-Shu) does not awaken anyone to the truth behind those activities. And when indoctrination (consider that word carefully) is complete it certainly doesnt mean it is in any way useful to either the person or the world. Whether one is Sensei, Osho, Roshi, Yogi or whatever is not too much different than a lot of people who have PhDs and the like and end up driving cabs for a living. Its what you do with what you know that makes all the difference. Static knowledge is useless ...
How many medical breakthroughs has China been responsible for? China may be an economic powerhouse, but their research is in general poor quality and Im not seeing any indication that theyre improving the conditions under which their research could thrive: such as the stultifying authoritarian structure of their universities, or their unwillingness to recruit talent from other countries. Other Asian countries could become ascendant in the next few decades, though. Singapore, for instance, has been pushing hard for the last decade to fund massive new biomedical research facilities, and aggressively recruiting top-level Western researchers. But even still, none of them would have the resources that the US can still bring to bear, even as economically sick as we are.. Id also argue that the reasons China "works so well" probably have more to do with their huge labor pool, use of child-labor and forced labor (political prisoners), lack of concern for standards or quality of living, lassitude ...
The second school of thought hopes the first is correct, but sees this regulation as the next "logical" step in an ongoing regulatory pattern. A pattern designed to "legalize" the use of authoritarian force, resulting in a concurrent diminishment of individual freedom. This theory reasons that the government is actually a regulatory agency that depends on the creation and enforcement of regulations ("law") for its very existence, and that the courts can be relied on to protect this status quo, BUT NOT NECESSARILY FREEDOM OR JUSTICE. E.g., Clark v. Community for Creative Non-Violence, 468 U.S. 288 ("CCNV"). Even the Rainbow court specifically held that "(t)he power of the Secretary to promulgate and enforce ... special use permits has been repeatedly upheld." Rainbow, 695 F.Supp. at 306-307.. ...
The de facto leader of the Opposition, Anwar Ibrahim, is in jail for sodomy.. But most analysts think that the ruling coalition will win as the system is greatly stacked in their favour, the economy has performed well recently and the opposition has often appeared disunited.. Sundays decision means that Mahathir could return as prime minister 15 years after he stepped down from the position.. With the countrys most popular opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim now in jail on sodomy charges, the authoritarian who ran the country for two decades is seen as the biggest threat for current premier Najib Razak, who must call an election by August.. He said even former prime minister Tun Ahmad Abdullah Badawi who was successor of Dr Mahathir did not continue some mega projects that were approved during Dr Mahathirs tenure which disappointed the latter.. When he was the prime minister, Dr Mahathir sacked Anwar and then vilified him when he was thrown in jail on sodomy and corruption charges.. But the ...

I turn now from the accidental to the essential factors, to those deriving from the very nature of Islamic society, tradition, and thought. The first of these is the authoritarianism, perhaps we may even say the totalitarianism, of the Islamic political tradition. . . . Many attempts have been made to show that Islam and democracy are identical-attempts usually based on a misunder-standing of Islam or democracy or both. This sort of argument expresses a need of the up- rooted Muslim intellectual who is no longer satisfied with or capable of understanding traditional Islamic values, and who tries to justify, or rather, re-state, his inherited faith in terms of the fashionable ideology of the day. It is an example of the romantic and apologetic presentation of Islam that is a recognized phase in the reaction of Muslim thought to the impact of the West…[T]he political history of Islam is one of almost unrelieved autocracy. . . . [I]t was authoritarian, often arbitrary, sometimes tyrannical. There ...
The future of capitalism is not necessarily democratic. Authoritarian capitalism is gaining foothold not only in non-democratic states, such as China, but even in countries with strong liberal institutions. From Greece to the US, an increasing number of countries show its symptoms. We need to look beyond the façade of the most visible political manoeuvres in order to understand how economic and political disciplining of citizens to create decent capitalist subjects can be combined into a political economic model that ensures accelerated capital accumulation through increased political repression.. Hungary is one of the most striking cases. Hungarian elites followed the good governance blueprints of international institutions, implementing liberal political and economic reforms between 1990 and 2010. For long, the country was considered to be a frontrunner of the third wave of democratisation, yet now is considered to be a frontrunner of democratic backsliding. Orbáns political economic model ...
By Melissa Dykes. This is the kind of quote that would have made big headlines half a decade back or so…. Now, the people at the top are openly admitting in everyones face that the global warming data has been falsified for years to bring about authoritarian, global control and it barely catches peoples attention.. This is what they are doing to everyone through everything from propaganda to mandates, and it is working.. Via The Business Insider:. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbotts top business advisor on Friday claimed climate change was a ruse encouraged by the United Nations to create a new authoritarian world order under its control.. Maurice Newman, chairman of the Prime Ministers Business Advisory Council, said the real agenda was "concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook".. In a column for The Australian newspaper to coincide with a visit by UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, he added that the world had been "subjected to extravagance from climate ...

By Allen Hibbard. The central issues and conflicts in A Banquet for Seaweed (first published in Arabic as Walîma li ashâb al-bahr in Cyprus in 1983) resonate throughout the Arab World today. Set in the 1960s and 1970s, the novel portrays characters who must forge paths midst the horrors of authoritarian regimes, modern political and social values, rising religious fundamentalism, residues of colonialism, powerful foreign influences (cultural, economic, and military), sectarian and geographic divisions within the Arab world, and narrowly defined roles for women. In a bold and often lyrical style, the novel exposes passionate and frank debates about controversial issues, often treating taboo topics in ways that have offended readers beliefs and tastes. When in 2000 the Egyptian Ministry of Cultures revealed plans to republish the novel, protesters rioted near Al-Azhar University in Cairo, spurred by press reports of its heretical content.. The novels narrative follows the lives of two Iraqi ...
Daniil Raskolnikov (translation of article from the Russian CWI site www.socialist.news). Former U.S. Secretary of State, Condalezza Rice, first dubbed Belarus the, "last dictatorship in Europe," over ten years ago, and ever since Western powers have treated the country like a pariah. Until, that is, President Lukashenko adopted a neutral position, even criticizing the Kremlin for supporting the pro-Russian republics in Ukraine. Diplomats and military experts now call for the West to engage more actively with this authoritarian state.. Hit by economic crisis, Lukashenko is looking desperately for help. He declared that EU citizens no longer need visas to visit the country. This is of huge significance because, until now, Belarus and Russia had a common visa regime, with no passport controls between the two countries. Now Russia has restored its border guards and passport controls. This is taking a big step towards the break-up of the Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.. Discontented ...
In this 4-year longitudinal study performed in a large population of relatively aged subjects, we found that PP was associated with the change over time in CCA-IMT and that CCA-IMT was associated with the change over time in PP. These associations were independent of MBP and other traditional cardiovascular risk factors and were observed both in hypertensive and nonhypertensive subjects as well as in antihypertensive-treated and -nontreated subjects.. The consistent lack of association between MBP and CCA-IMT, after adjustment for PP, both in cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses, is noteworthy. These results suggest that in the elderly, the relationship of MBP with IMT is far less important than that of PP.. The magnitude of the association between brachial PP and carotid IMT in our cross-sectional analysis was very close to that observed in the other cross-sectional studies.5 6 7 8 A wide PP in elderly subjects could be considered a result of an increase in arterial stiffness in large ...
Priests were the officers in the Catholic Revolution. Their changes in attitude towards birth control, masturbation, and divorce occurred at the same time as the revolutionary effervescence which spread among the laity. Priesthood has paid a high price for its revolutionary leadership. Priests are also responsible for the emergence of beige Catholicism and the new authoritarian pragmatism. Large proportions of priests do not accept the official teachings of the Church about moral behaviors that are considered always wrong. American priests tend to value human sexuality, lay freedom, and the dignity of women. This chapter studies the divergence in the interpretations of values between the Vatican and the American priests. The American priests saw the wineskins bursting and rushed in to save the situation by counseling the laity of the need to base decisions on their own consciences. They thus reinforced and extended the effervescence of the revolutionary movement. ...
Bikur cholim (Hebrew: ביקור חולים‎; "visiting the sick"; also transliterated Bikur holim) refers to the mitzvah (Jewish religious commandment) to visit and extend aid to the sick. It is considered an aspect of gemilut chasadim (benevolence, selflessness,loving-kindness). It is traditional to recite prayers for healing, such as the Mi Shebeirach prayer in the synagogue, and Psalms (especially Psalm 119) on behalf of the sick. Bikur cholim societies exist in Jewish communities around the world. The earliest Bikur cholim society on record dates back to the Middle Ages.. History. The roots of Bikur cholim can be traced back to the Torah, when God visits Abraham after his circumcision (Genesis 18:1).. Bikur cholim is mentioned in the Babylonian Talmud several times, in Tractate Nedarim 39a, 39b, and 40a. Nedarim 39a and 39b state that "[One must visit] even a hundred times a day" and that "He who visits a person who is ill takes away a sixtieth of his pain." Nedarim 40a says that "anyone ...

The Antidote to Authoritarianism | Center for Internet and SocietyThe Antidote to Authoritarianism | Center for Internet and Society

My first known ancestor in the Americas was an Ashanti woman called "the African." We dont know her name, but through records kept by slaveholders, we know she existed.. We know she was transported to Jamaica, where my known lineage began. These records of property bought and sold were a form of surveillance at the time.

The slave passes, branding, and lantern laws of then have become the cellphone trackers, facial recognition software, and body-worn police cameras of now. Their mission, however, hasnt changed much-to catch and control black dissidence-only now theyre doing so in a digital age.. These technologies have been incorporated into the law enforcement process at every level, from predictive algorithms for assessing pre-trial risk and criminal activity to widely adopted police technologies that face little to no oversight. These technologies-including cell-site ...
